Thomas was allegedly so ill that he could not speak and had to write down his symptoms for the paramedics. TMZ is reporting that he had a “possible stroke.”

A friend told the publication that he “remains hospitalized” and his condition is stabilised.

He went to hospital in Mexico where he lives and they later moved him via ambulance across the border to a hospital in San Diego on a gurney and with an oxygen mask, according to reports.

Samantha Markle told the Daily Mail her dad "just needs peace and rest" adding their family is "praying" he gets well soon.
